Coniferous forest in Cwm Irfon, Powys
Surrounding the confluence of Cwm Nant y Cloddiad and Cwm Nant Irfon near the Devil's staircase is this plantation of coniferous forest, part of the very extensive Tywi Forest. The view is seen here from the forestry road north-west of the "staircase".
The Tywi Forest
The Tywi Forest is a very extensive area of coniferous plantation mainly established in the 1960s over what had been, in the main, open moorland. Abandoned post-Medieval settlements and Bronze Age monuments reveal that this landscape was more intensively populated and used in the past. With many of the trees being well over forty years old, felling is in progress in many parts of the forest, including here, hence the good condition of many of the stony forestry roads. Young trees are also becoming well established in many of the cleared areas.
